Hotels in Edinburgh

When you join Inspiring Travel for your dream trip to Scotland, we typically begin and end your tour with a stay in either of the large cities, based on your flights. Whether you plan a tailor-made custom tour of Scotland or join us for any of our planned tours, we tend to start and finish our journeys in Glasgow or Edinburgh.

If you fly in and out of Edinburgh Airport, we will arrange for you to stay in the historic, charming capital city where you can meander the closes of Old Town and marvel at the architecture of New Town. Explore Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace, earn the beautiful city skyline views from atop Arthur’s Seat, and stroll the cobbled streets that have been walked for centuries. We have lots of Edinburgh Inspiration for you to start dreaming about your visit!

When you stay in Edinburgh, we prefer a prime location over anything else. We arrange your hotel stay based around your personal interests and intended activities, in order to maximise your time in the city. Our preference is to avoid the business hotel chains and to, instead, offer you a stay that exudes Scottish heritage and charm. 

To start off your Scotland planning, take a look at the location we tend to book in Edinburgh based on their extraordinary service and amenities. Always feel free to get in touch with us if you have a specific request or any questions about your trip to Scotland.

Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh: The Caledonian

Built in 1903 to rival The Balmoral hotel on Princes Street, The Caledonian boasts beautiful views of Edinburgh Castle in a fantastic location in the city centre. Luxury abounds here, with a stunning entrance drawing you back in time to the glory days of train travel, where luxury hotels greeted guests upon arrival at their destination station.

The Caledonian offers you the perfect location from which to explore Edinburgh. Steps from Princes Street Gardens and at the end of the High Street (Princes Street), you can easily access New Town and Old Town from here, with all the shops and restaurants along the way.

The West End is also where you’ll find several art galleries or you can take an easy stroll to historic Dean Village and along the Water of Leith to the quaint neighbourhood of Stockbridge.

The Caledonian offers location, luxury, and ample historic charm to make your visit to Edinburgh a truly magical experience.
